The overarching, free to read under terms, of the TAVR mini-compendium of this week: the most complex question remains "what is a reasonable expectation of a stakeholder on outcomes of aortic stenosis?"
2019 AATS/ACC/ASE/SCAI/STS Expert Consensus Systems of Care Document: A Proposal to Optimize Care for Patients With Valvular Heart Disease
April 20, 2019
The American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS), American College of Cardiology (ACC), American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), and Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) published a joint expert consensus and evidence-based recommendations for systems of care related to valvular he

Transcatheter aortic valve is usually implanted via transfemoral or transapical access. Reents and colleagues sought to compare the safety of these two access routes, using a retrospective analysis of their experience.

The Stanford University cardiac surgery team expounds on current evidence for selection of prostheses in valve replacement. While more liberal usage of biologic prostheses in younger patients may be appropriate for the aortic valve, the support for this practice in the mitral position is not as strong.

In light of the recent Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommendation for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) volumes, this study looked at 113,662 TAVRs from the TVT registry from 2015 to 2017 and found that 30-day mortality was higher at low-volume TAVR hospitals or low-volume operators.

A number of interesting findings in early follow up of this randomized controlled trial on one type of transcatheter aortic valve against conventional surgery: the mechanics of the valve and the incidence of complete heart block, to name but a few. We await the longer follow up.
